Forum: GratefulDead Subject: What Do It All Mean?

As I get more into bittorrent, I run across terms like FOB, CM and so on. I know what AUD and SBD are, but is there a source of explanation for these lineage terms?

TFTL (thanks for the link)

always thought CM when inserted in the lineage meant "cassette master"

sorry Charlie, we can't give you credit for all of it, just most of it :)

probably depends on where the CM appears in the "sentence." I just love it when i know it it Charlie - cassette masters can often suck - charlie's uploads rarely do.

I've never heard a Charlie Miller transfer that came anywhere near sucking. I'm hoping that was just apoor choice of words.

no no no no!!! - i certainly didn't intend to imply that Charlie Miller's work sucks at all. Just the opposite. I dont see how my statement implied that, but it must be coming across wrong to other people like yourself.
my intent was to say that if the CM only means Cassette Master - it can mean nothing - cassette masters often can suck. BUT, if you see CM as in Charlie Miller, you are pretty much guaranteed a great sounding show!! I ALWAYS go for Charlie's transfers if possible - especially with the Kimock shows.
Sorry if my choice of wording in my prior post caused any confusion - just typed it too fast i guess and left my thoughts vague.

It was clear to me, maybe you should have put a period after Charlie and a comma after suck...of course it's early and i have'nt had my morning dose to make things soooo confusing, yet

glad it was clear to someone :)
your comma and period suggestion certainly would have made it a bit more clear though, nice call. i use dashes way too often in my posts.

Maybe you should let her have a go as "direwolf" one evening! She could bone up on her typing skills AND comment on the Dead and Dad ...

Well, that is way cool man! And anyway, aren't all parents 'tyrants' in their own way.

thankfully i dont have to be a "true" tyrant. though i like to make my girls think i am - lol
they are great - respectful, good in school, well behaved in all environments. im a lucky dad - gotta admit though, they have me wrapped around their fingers - they know it, but dont abuse it - very cool situation.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but FOB means it's an aud recording from the Front Of the (sound)Board, and CM are the initials of a well-known and prolific quality seeder by the name of Charlie Miller.

Read Charlie's text files agan. Notice that he signs them using lower case initials. - cm

CM is Cassette Master
